Enterprise Storage Shopping Considerations
When consumers compare shopping strategies, one can often learn something from the other (the idea of researching cars' turning diameters, for example).

So enterprise storage experts of all sorts may appreciate a new explanation of one buyer's thought process.

IT is sometimes portrayed as the bad guy or the obstacle in the enterprise 2.0 space as some times they attempt to block or curtail social media activities. Forrester's Nigel Fenwick presents a nice twist to this view by offering research on how social computing can boost IT productivity. I saw Nigel at the recent Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston so it is nice to get a review copy of this report.

How To Manage Your Social CRM Process
In the past week or so we covered a few interesting topics with easy to understand visuals (we hope).  We looked at the difference between CRM and Social CRM (for those that are new here CRM = customer relationship management) and also explored the evolution of CRM to Social CRM.  Today I want to talk about a process that Chess Media Group and Mitch Lieberman developed aptly called ARM or; the Action, Reaction, Management, Process.  As quoted in the Guide to Understanding Social CRM:

How To Avoid 403 Errors When Updating Your site
After 13 years developing web sites you'd think I'd have seen it all. No such luck, as the Interwebs continue to surprise me. Recently we revamped a web site for Hatch Billiards, a maker of custom pool tables and billiards furniture. We took it from being a static brochureware web site and ported it to WordPress so that Hatch Billiards could update and maintain the site in house.  As part of that conversion, all .html pages were renamed as .php pages.

Natural Site Linking Is A Good Start But Not The Solution To SEO
I don't know how many times Google have said: "Produce great content and if users find it useful, they'll recommend and link to you." But Google, how do I get these people to even come through your engine? "Produce great content and they'll (somehow) come. They'll find your content and recommend you!"

Improving Your Site To Develop Better Content
If George Lucas taught us anything with his re-tinkering of the original Star Wars trilogy it's that there is no such thing as "perfect." When it comes to your website's content, the same holds true. But in the case of your website, the tinkering should improve upon the original rather than create a bastardize version of an mildly flawed classic.

Everyone has a brand whether they like it or not. I am not talking about the clothes you wear or the car you drive either; that's definitely part of it. The brand I am talking about is your attitude, how you carry yourself and the perception that others have about you; not that you have of yourself.
